A friend has suggested that we call britt's insanity the ELSIE Act. [View all]

iI have not worked it out yet. Perhaps some of our more talented members could suggest the best words???

For those of you who have not seen one of today's more insane little tidbits, that nutcase from Alabama, katie britt (remember her state of the union response?) has introduced a bill called the MOMS Act (More Opportunities for Moms to Succeed), which would essentially create a federal data base of pregnant people. She has been excoriated, laughed at, ridiculed all over the internet today (including the cringe-worthy video, which has not been posted on DU yet).
